Today I managed to squeeze into some shorts I bought a few months ago, and haven't been able to wear until now. Naturally I was very happy about that since I really like these shorts... they have such a great cut, and have a great fire red colour.

Vintage high waisted shorts from ebay, leotard from American Apparel, and shoes from Dinsko.

Agent Provocateur.

For years I had wanted to purchase some underwear from Agent Provocatur as their underwear is so pretty, and has a boudoir feeling to it. And also probably because it is Agent Provocateur. Their prices have always put me off though. But then a few weeks ago I noticed that they had a sale with quite reasonable prices, so I went for it. What I bought arrived in such a beautiful wrapping with a little card, too.

They apparently still have a sale, if anyone's interested. Some items are also down to 70%.

1. Clothes shop: Topshop perhaps... but I mostly buy my clothes on the internet these days, and H&M has been disappointing recently. I also really like American Apparel.

2. Furniture shop: Not sure. We don't have any nice ones where I live. Otherwise I'd say Ikea I suppose.

3. Sweet: Dark chocolate.

London, day six.

This was our last full day in London, and it was a little stressful since there were many things we both wanted to do.

My boyfriend wanted to go to the Millennium Dome and I tagged along. It wasn't very special really...

but, there were some nice mushrooms there....

... and green shells...

... and games.

Afterwards I did some shopping on my own, and we met up again a little later and had lunch at a restaurant that someone had recommended to us. However, I wasn't very impressed. It was too pricey, and my food wasn't very tasty at all.

But my boyfriend liked his.

We then went to Portobello Road as I was looking for a café, which actually turned out to be closed. But the area in itself was very nice to see. I regret that we didn't come there another day to go to the market, but I'll have to do that next time I'm in London.

The shops in that area sold a lot of nice things.

In the evening we dropped by Covent Garden, and we discovered a sweetshop that sold sweets from all around the world. We ended up buying a lot of sweets that I had never seen before in my life.

That was sadly our last day in London, and now I miss it so much. I'm thinking about even trying to go back there twice, or at least once a year now since it's such a fantastic city.

The sea.

A few days ago I went to a pretty place by the seaside with my boyfriend. The weather was quite nice, although not very warm, but now it already feels like autumn is just around the corner. I can't say that I feel very excited about that considering the fact that the winters here are extremely long, and the weather never suitable for wearing the kind of clothes I want to wear. It's quite safe to say that I won't settle here for life, no matter how nice it might be in the summer.

I'm wearing a dress from Dahlia, tights from H&M and shoes from Bianco.

London, day five.

I think I need to hurry up a little posting my pictures from London, as it's nearly two weeks since I came back now.

Nevertheless, these are the pictures from the second to last full day we had in London. We went to the Spitafields market in the morning, which was nice. I sort of regret not going to Portobello market instead since the things sold there might have been more varied - at least that's what I imagine. I didn't buy anything at Spitafields, except for a pair of sunglasses, but it was still nice looking around there. Afterwards we walked down Brick Lane, which was nice and interesting. In the afternoon we went to Tate Modern. That was really nice although we didn't have much time there. In a way, though, it was nice that they closed rather early since we went to see The Edge of Love in the cinema. The film was really nice, but the plot was perhaps a little weak (considering that my boyfriend fell asleep). I think I mostly liked it for the beautiful outfits, however.

These are the sunglasses I bought at Spitafields market. They look strange, but I like the shape of them a lot. I just wish that the glass wouldn't be so reflective.

Tate modern.

Recently I was tagged by Hannah-Zoë, who has the wonderful blog 'Butterflykisses'.

Six random things about me:

1. As much as I love big cities, I feel that I have a need to escape into the woods once in a while to think and to just feel alone. That's one of the things I like about living where I do - being so close to nature where I can find a special place somewhere that feels like it's only mine. I really want to live in a bigger city than mine later on, but I also want to be in close proximity to nature.

2. I have a strange attraction to polkadots. Not so long ago I thought I had grown tired of them, but apparently I haven't since I still find them adorable and feel compulsed to buy nearly anything that has them on it.

3. I still don't know what I want to do with my life, and thinking about that makes me feel depressed in a way. I don't have so long left until I'm finished with my teacher's education, but I really don't know if that's the right thing for me. When I was younger I always imagined I'd do something more creative, although I don't really feel creative anymore. And I also thought I'd end up as something more extrordinary, but also that I'd also somehow just end up being whatever I was meant to be, however silly that may sound.

4. I try to eat only natural and vegan food as far as I can - and always when I cook for myself. Of course it's not always possible - especially when I'm travelling or am staying somewhere else, but I still try to eat vegan (or at least vegetarian) all the time. I just think that it's better for me, and I want to know that what I eat is good for me.

5. I always watch a lot of films. I love films that are dreamy, deep and inspire me.

6. I love making origami. However, I must confess that I'm not the greatest at it, and it's been quite some time since I last did it, but it's great fun, nonetheless.

London, day four.

The fourth day, Saturday, in London was nice. In the morning I went shopping a little on my own, and then my boyfriend and I did nice things together the rest of the day...

My breakfast at our hotel that day - porridge.

After shopping when I met up with my boyfriend, we went to the British museum, which was really nice. Unfortunately we didn't have much time, but many of the exhibitions were very interesting.

Afterwards we walked towards the Covent Garden area...

I bought some tea at 'The Tea House'. I'm such a tea-lover, and they had a great selection of tea, which was so much cheaper than in Norway.

In the evening we went to 'Ed's easy diner', which was like an original 50's style American diner. So fun. They even had tiny jukeboxes on every table where you could pick songs from the 50's. I had a mint milkshake and a vegetarian bean burger, and my boyfriend ate a frankfurter sausage. It was really tasty, too.

Frilly dress.

Today was a really nice day, and my boyfriend, who is visiting me for two months (hurray!), and I walked around in the city centre. We also sat down in a nice park and talked. I was wearing a dress I bought in London. I love it because it's so frilly and light weight and makes me want to run through a meadow with wild flowers.

Dress by Traffic People (bought at Topshop, Oxford Circus), pink leotard (underneath) from American Apparel, vintage blazer, tights from H&M and shoes from Topshop.

London, day two and three.

In the morning on Thursday last week we went to do some sightseeing that my boyfriend was interested in. I don't really care much for it, as I rather just want to walk around and just see different areas. We did a little of that, too, going to Covent Garden as well.

Later that day we had dinner at my mother's cousin who lives in London. I don't have any pictures from it, but it was very nice.

The next day, in the morning, wasn't very fun for me either. We went to the Docklands as my boyfriend wanted to look at the buildings there. It was okay, but I sort of felt like I was missing out on other things that I'd much rather do.

Perhaps the nicest thing about that area was a really nice park, which soft, long grass that felt like a bed to lie in.

Afterwards we did some more sightseeing in London, such as seeing the Tower Bridge...

... then, finally, some shopping. I found this really nice shop called Dahlia in Carnaby that had the most adoring clothes, as well as fitting rooms.

I bought this dress, and I love it so much.

I really, really regret not buying this trenchcoat. I didn't have time to go back and buy it later.
